Kenneth Steinhoff

Kenneth F. Steinhoff of Port Washington, Wis., passed away on Jan. 28, 2023, surrounded by his loving family. 

Ken was born in Freeport, Ill., to the late Ernest and Gwendolyn (Scheele) Steinhoff. 

Ken graduated from Freeport High School in Freeport, Ill., and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison to achieve a bachelor’s degree in urban planning. 

He proudly served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps. 

Ken was united in marriage to Susan Steinhoff (nee Anderson) on Aug. 24, 1968, in New London, Conn. They were married for 55 years.

Ken’s most precious gift was being a husband, father, father-in-law and grandfather.

He was an avid bicycle rider and was an expert on all local bike trails. 

Being a cancer survivor, he was eager to be a support to others facing that same battle. Ken was truly a walking miracle after surviving stage 4 cancer, which was diagnosed when he was 59 years old.

Those left to cherish Ken’s memory include his wife Sue, daughters Sherry Bublitz (Mike) and Valerie Salzman (Dan), son Daniel Steinhoff (Carly), granddaughter Emma Macek (Mitch), grandson Jacob Salzman, granddaughter Ellie Salzman, granddaughter Lauren Steinhoff, brother Neil Steinhoff, many beloved dogs who were true family members and many other family members and friends. 

Ken’s family will greet friends on Feb. 4, 2023, at Grace Lutheran Church, 715 6th Ave., Grafton, WI  53024 from 9 to 10:45 a.m. A service of remembrance for Ken will be held following the visitation at 11 a.m. at Grace Lutheran Church, with Pastor Greg Van Dunk officiating. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials to Grace Lutheran Church or the Wisconsin Humane Society Ozaukee Campus are appreciated. 

Mueller Funeral Home and Crematory has been entrusted with Ken’s arrangements.
